Tere kino lovers! Apologies for the long delay since our last screening – we’ll be having one movie night on the 2nd June and the final one on the 7th July before Lachlan heads off to Estonia!

For June Kino is screening the short film “Salme saladus / Another Dimension” (2018) and “Vee peal / On The Water” (2020). This will be the penultimate Kino screening, with the next one planned on the 7th July.

Moonika Siimets’ short documentary “Salme saladus / Another Dimension” (2018) takes viewers to the small coastal borough of Salme in Saaremaa where modernity meets the past. Superstition and traditions are as common everyday phenomena as fishing and harvesting crops in Salme. We then follow the lives of the Sõnajalg family, an infamous 90s singing Christian quartet-turned business empire who fly helicopters and build wind farms. In a town where UFOs and spirits can be seen amongst Viking skeletons and the Sõnajalg dynasty’s wind turbines – there are two realities here that do not fit together. What on earth is going on there?

Our feature film for the night is “Vee peal / On The Water” (2020) directed by Peeter Simm. Selected as the Estonian entry for the Best International Feasture Film at the 94th Academy Awards, the coming-of-age film takes us to the sleepy village set in the small southern Estonian city of Võru in the 1980s where Andres is raised by his strict grandparents. Escaping the constant bullying at school through fishing and he takes to the lake to work out his ambitions and life goals meeting colourful characters along convicted criminal Valter and the simpleminded fisherman Kolla. A dramedy full of sometimes risqué humour comes as an adaptation of Olavi Ruitlane’s autobiographical novel of the same name “Vii pääl” released in 2015.
